Siri No Longer Able to Rate Apple Music Songs on Request in iOS 15 and Later

According to user reports and tests conducted by MacRumors, Siri appears to have lost the ability to carry out requests to rate songs played in the Apple Music app in iOS 15 and later.

When you were listening to a song from your music library on your iPhone or iPad, you could ask Siri to “rate this song five [or whatever number] stars,” and the virtual assistant would do so without hesitation.

Siri’s ability to rate songs in the Apple Music app was first introduced in iOS 8. When listening hands-free via CarPlay, exercising while wearing AirPods, or creating smart playlists based on ratings, listeners typically rely on the function to rate songs in their library.

However, reports on Reddit, Apple Support Communities, and the MacRumors forums indicate that the function is not available in iOS 15 or iOS 15.1 and that it is still unavailable in the latest iOS 15.2 point release, which was released in December. Instead of carrying out the request, Siri says, “I’m sorry, I’m afraid I can’t do that,” or something along those lines.

It’s unclear whether this is a deliberate change by Apple or an intermittent server-side issue that has arisen since the release of iOS 15, but it’s worth noting that iOS 15 and iOS 15.2 both made functional changes to Siri, both in terms of Apple Music interoperability and more broadly at the system level.

Apple changed Siri in iOS 15 to handle some requests without an internet connection, allowing for faster query recognition when doing things like opening apps and setting alarms and timers. The company then introduced a new Apple Music Voice Plan in iOS 15.2 that solely relies on Siri for music playback and user interaction.

It’s unclear whether either of these changes is to blame for Siri’s inability to rate songs on demand, but we’ve reached out to Apple for more information and will update this post if we hear back.
